TURN ON WORD WRAP!
iFDG is proud to present the Airbus A321. The aircraft model includes most of the standard features including animated control surfaces, wingviews, flaps, full lighting configuration, and highly detailed, reflective textures.
"The A321 accommodates 185 passengers in a two-class configuration over a range of up to 3,000nm/5,550km, and up to 220 passengers in a high-density configuration. It can be powered by CFM56-5 or IAE V2500 engines. The A321 is the largest member of the A320 Family. It offers the best seat-mile costs of any single-aisle aircraft and is even on a par with widebody efficiency, bringing a new dimension to profitability. Together or individually, the members of the A320 Family make up the world’s most profitable single-aisle family ever." - Description by Airbus.
This aircraft is made by iFDG (international Flightsim Design Group),

FLAP VORTEX EFFECTS OPERATION
Use your Smoke System key. Note that the Eric Marciano A32X panel activates these effects automatically when appropriate.
NOTE: You must assign a keyboard command (Options -> Controls -> Assignments) for Tailhook and Wingfold! By default, Flight Simulator DOES NOT assign a command for these features.
The A321 is a LONG aircraft! BEWARE OF TAILSTRIKE during rotation! DO NOT exceed 10 degrees rotation until you have lifted off!
The A321-100's have a much lower Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW) than the A321-200's! If you want to fly with a full payload, you may have to offload some fuel to stay below MTOW! You may also lower your payload in order to fly with a full fuel load.
The A321 is a much heavier aircraft than the A320. When taking off at MTOW, you may need to use an initial Cruise Level of 29,000 feet. With about 30,000 lbs of fuel remaining, you may cruise higher. Higher Cruise Levels are available if necessary, but it may take a long time to climb to them at full load.
Pay attention to the Maximum Landing Weights! Make sure you are below these weights when you land.
You must assign a keyboard command (Options -> Controls -> Assignments) for Tailhook and Wingfold (cargo doors and drooping control surface operation)! By default, Flight Simulator DOES NOT assign a command for these features.
